WarmingWorks Sells Land That Will Become Beachfront Property by 2050

Jealous of your neighbor’s beachfront vacation home  but don’t want to shell out the big bucks to buy one of your own? Don’t worry — a company called WarmingWorks wants to help. This innovative startup is scouting locations around the world that will be affected by creeping climate change over the next few years. But WarmingWorks doesn’t want to help solve the climate crisis — it is buying up properties at dirt-cheap prices that will one day become coastal as global warming  causes sea levels to rise.
That’s right — you can just laugh off anyone who brags about their home in St. Bart’s, because decades from now their property will be submerged while yours will be sitting pretty by the beach. The best part: buying a WarmingWorks property ensures that your kids and grandkids will have access to the beach house. Because wouldn’t it be sad if global warming took away your family’s assets?
“At this point, we don’t have too much confidence in the power of governments to stop sea level rises, ” explained WarmingWorks CEO Joe Fishman. “We’re not happy about it, but we’re still going to take advantage. There’s plenty of money to be made here.”
